You must drain some off via the sump plug at the base of the engine. Too much oil will kill the catalyst in no time.

I have a 2009 ford KA and when driving on motorways the oil light flickers yet the oil is showing at the max level mark on the dip stick.???

The light is flickering due to low oil pressure or a faulty sender unit.
The first thing to do is to change the oil filter. If it hasn't been changed for a long time it will restrict the flow of oil going through the filter.

Whats happening if the engen oil is too much?

Do you mean you have overfilled.
If it is way above the top mark on the dip stick drain a bit out
otherwise there is a risk of an hydraulic lockup (the surplus oil can jam the moving parts)

If oil dip stick is below the first whole does it need 1/2 quart of oil?

Or a whole quart. Just add 1/2 first, wait a couple of minutes, then check the level. Add the remaining 1/2 qt. if needed. DO NOT OVERFILL !!!

Overfilled oil in 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage

if this is engine oil just undo the engine drain plug you will obviously need a large flatish tray to catch it in ,if its the tranny same thing but let it all out and start again with fresh fluid check manual for quantity, the consequences can be quite damaging to the engine if driven and more so for the tranny so do before drivig again

Oil overfill

Not for 1/2 quart
If it is up on the dip stick more than 1/8" over full
I would loosen the drain plug & let some out
1" above full is at least a quart or more & yes
let some out

Transmition add gear oil refilling

Automatic? Through the hole where you check the trans fluid (dip stick). Warning: DO NOT OVERFILL!!! Overfill will likely result in damage to the trans and possibly a fire when the oil over heats and runs out of the dip stick hole and falls onto the hot motor.

Manual? There is a hole on the side of the box. Hole is plugged with a 1/2" pipe plug or similar. You will have to pump the 80- or 120 weight oil in as the hole is high on the box and will not allow you top put the container high enough to allow gravitity to assist you with this.

Manual transmissions rarely need oil ... remove the plug and put your finger into the hole. When you take your finger out ... there should be oil on it.

The tranny dip stick is behind the eng. on the passenger side between the firewall and motor.Its not easy to spot because it sits down in a little bit and is black in color.Add oil where you pull the dip stick out and not to much oil at a time.You will need to get a small funnel that will fit into the tube.Once you have found the it,check the oil level with the eng.running and hot to get the correct reading.Add a little at a time being sure you dont overfill.Recheck the level after driving and add more if nessesary.Hope this helps.
